An atmospheric radiosounding station was installed, on 1987 at the meteorological laboratory of the Italian base: the system includes a meteorological station for data
collection at ground level, a receiving ground station (VAISALA Marwin 12), which receives data transmitted via radio by the sonde, and stores them in a computer with a
dedicated software which shows, in real time, the trend of the measured parameters. The data received are stored in ASCII files, and coded in the standard meteorological
format 'TEMP' to send them to the global system of the WMO-GTS.
The two daily files are obtained through the lauch of two balloons at 00:00 and 12:00 GMT, if the weather allows to do it, which contain, for each standard level,
geopotential height, temperature, humidity and wind.
With data collected from radiosounding it is possible to obtain graphs, examples of which are shown below for each type.
